One would think that by 2020, the watch world had managed to yield up just about every type of calendar for the wrist — from the utter simplicity of a date window to the complexity of a perpetual calendar, and from practical annual calendars to esoteric “weekly” calendars like recent models from Blancpain and Patek Philippe. But leave it to MeisterSinger, the iconoclastic manufacturer from Münster, Germany, near the Dutch border, to come up with the quirkiest one yet. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Astroscope, an astronomically inspired day-and-date calendar timepiece with a special connection to the year 2020.

I continue to contend that Mark Bernardo's head looks like it was squeezed in a vise.

I saw a Meistersinger at a freaking Nordstrom Rack and I should have grabbed the thing, but didn't. Pure foolishness.
Best of luck to all my longtime friends here. Please stay safe, always.

Pretty cool movement but a lot of one hand watches look like pressure gauges.
I like the looks of the Lunascope better. the lunar dial and the fact it's a 12 hour dial makes it not look like a pressure gauge.
